    What will come now? Plantwise that is.

    In May of 2007 I had major cervical spine surgery. During my recovery my having a few sundews among the orchids to control fungus gnats developed into a full fledged interest in CPs. As a get well gift my family put in a half whiskey barrel bog where I could sit on the front porch and watch all the activity around it.

    Flashing forward to this month. Due to complications I'm having a much rougher recovery so far. Leading me to wonder. What new, if any, interest will spring forward during this recovery.

    I like the vineyard idea! A few ideas: bonsai, air plants, companion bog plants, Proto-carnivorous plants like Stylidium.

    I have wanted my own vineyard for years but the only place sunny enough for one is in the front yard and my other half has always nixed that idea,
